    I wouldn't have thought so, I have 8Mb, and I have my PS3, my laptop, my sisters laptop and my dad's computer. Still runs fine for me through all that, so 2 consoles shouldn't do much. Although some people have had problems with the router, apparently the Xbox sometimes cuts the PS3's connection off or something.

    I dont really know, i use wifi to play online and such, usually get 70% + signal, and im SUPPOSED to have a 1Mb connection, but my ISP is Messing with me so im getting like.....less than a 100Kbps at the speedtest site =/, Yet i still get NO lag when i play Warhawk online, so i dont think it will be an issue. And even when someone else is on the lappy too, no lag!.

    You'll be fine. I've had 3 PCs and 2 game systems connected to one router wirelessly before and it was never a problem. Just don't be running download programs on your PC like BitComet or UTorrent if you want to play games.

    It might cause some lag for the 360 game, i heard 360 games get lag, i never witnessed any lag with any ps3 game BUT!!....Fight night round 3, which is weird since there isnt a whole lot going on, i blame EA.

    You may get lag, you may not; won't know till you try it but I'd guess you should be ok with a decent connection. Do as the one post says though and don't be downloading a bunch of stuff while you're playing, that will make pretty much any connection lag, depending on size of the downlaod.

    Also, the type of router you have will have an effect this.

    You've got a 4MB connection and YOU're worried about lag?C'mon that's more than enough for your pc,laptop,ps3,360,ps2,psp combined.Just don't be using torrents or GB downloads when playing,cuz that'll make you lag for sure.

    I have the PS3 and my roommate has the 360. We play online all the time at the same time and never had a problem on the PS3 side. The 360 lagged every once and awhile, but the this happens regardless if the PS3 is online or not. And as far as everyone saying not to have anything downloading, I never had a problem playing online while I am downloading something. Just keep in mind like everyone else is saying, your experience with this could be completely different depending on many factors like IP, router, etc.

    On another note, what is a GB download?

    at my house my girlfriend and my ps3 are on at the same time playing online together (wirelessly), and we are not getting any lag. I also have my laptop on (not downloading) and my desktop(hardwired) on upstairs.
    What's the point in having an Internet connection if you're not using it to look up weird, ****ed-up pictures of dirty sex you'll never have yourself?

    Funny part about this statement is that I have all three consoles hooked to my router through hard wire and the wii knocked off both my 360 and PS3. Interesting, no?

    the Wii might have been trying to use the same IP address, that's the only time I've seen a problem with multiple systems causing issues.

    Yeah with a 4Mb down connection you won't have any problems. If it was under a meg then maybe or even 1.5. I used to have 1.5 and never had any problems with one console so by deductive reasoning two wouldn't be a problem on a 4 meg connection. As said though don't run a torrent, that will dominate your connection.

    if you plan to download and play at the same time limit the speed of the torrents and leave enough so you can play online.

    I wouldn't think you would have any problems. For me on the other hand, with a 256kb/s connection. I have to turn off every computer in the house just about so that i can safely online game without major lag. With 4MB, you should have no problems!

    You should be fine. In the dorms we all share the same internet and there are a lot of people playing online at once and it's never any trouble. Usually in my room I'll be playing COD4 online on the PS3 and my friend will be playing COD:UO on the PC and both our games are fine... and then every now and then there's 1-2 guys using my wireless to play WoW on their laptop.
